Description

Black-and-white, full-length portrait of a young girl, facing the left side of the image, her face turned toward the viewer. She is standing in front of a gray, stone wall, and wearing a short, white dress. Her proper right arm is raised above her head, and her left arm is resting along the side of her body. Her right foot is a step ahead of her left foot. She has ear-length, straight, dark hair with bangs that cover her forehead. Her lips are pursed together and her eyes are open widely. She is wearing short, white socks and white shoes.
